COMING UP THIS WEEK
PGA TOUR –WGC Mexico Championship
The PGA TOUR is crossing the boarded down to Mexico to play Vidanta Vallarta where Team Troon members Gary Woodland and Alex Noren will be competing.
Interesting factoid: The late Tom Weiskopf (one who was an accomplished player, golf course designer and one close to the Troon family) won the tournament back in 1978 when it went by the Doral-Eastern Open.
LPGA TOUR- JM Eagle LA Championship
The LPGA TOUR travels back to California again to compete in the city of angels at Wilshire Country Club. It’s a par 71 course holding. Yealimi Noh is in the field and her game off the tee will come in handy as the course will be playing at 6,258yd and she is currently ranked in the top 10 on the LPGA for driving distance at 278.25yds.
PGA CHAMPIONS TOUR – Insperity Invitational
Texas is the next stop on tour for the Champions and Team Troon’s Colin Montgomerie. He has played in 206 Champions Tour events since joining and has made 204 of the 206 cuts. Play well this week!
There is still a buzz out there about Matt Fitzpatrick’s recent RBC win. Even @RBCHeritage continues to share great photos to their 29K Instagram followers. Including this one that has a great shot of his family and his all Troon bag. Congrats again Matt!
Gary Woodland was close to home during his off week last week and headed to Boca Grove CC to speak about his life on tour, US Open win, educate others on Folds of Honor and more. Some great shots of the event were shared on @Troon Social and @BocaGroveCC social channels (highlights below).
